clear politics" average of the most recent polling in the state of ohio shows president obama ahead in ohio by 2.3 points. these "real clear politics" averages are an imperfect measure. i want to give you a very rough idea of how basically how close it is right now. that's what it is in ohio. in virginia, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of
's a big reason why barack obama's maintaining this five-point lead. look at the same quinnipiac poll, these internals are brutal for mitt romney. any way you slice it. unless you believe that quinnipiac, one of the most accurate polling that's out there is cooking the books. and if you do, change channels because you're listening to the wrong channel. >> yes. there's that. >> so there's the internals of this poll show that 52% of the people in ohio think the economy is getting better. 47% think the economy is staying the same or getting worse. and when asked who cares more about people like them, president obama leads mitt romney by almost 18 points. john heilemann, if it's ohio, ohio, ohio and the president's maintaining a five-point lead and he's ahead 2-1 in early voting in ohio based on this poll, if you assume that the people at quinnipiac are not in the tank for barack obama and are not sniffing glue and none of us at this table believe that because, again, four years ago and two years ago, quinnipiac was really one of the most accurate polls. >> yeah. >> then this is a firewal
once a state considered a lock for obama, but with polls showing a tightening race the president's appearance in green bay today is telling just how close this election could be. >> i'm really moved by your welcome. >> reporter: mitt romney appeared in another key battleground state addressing a crowd of window manufacturers in virginia. the former massachusetts governor slammed the president on private sector job creation while continuing to grow the federal government. >> he's been talking about how he's going to save big bird and then playing silly word games with my last name or first and then attacking me day in, day out. attacking me doesn't get people back to work. >> reporter: meanwhile in a last minute scramble to move undecided voters in swing states several campaign surrogates from the candidates' spouses to their vice presidential running mates spanned out from colorado to ohio. ohio continues to be ground zero as the neck and neck race there could be the deciding factor in who takes the white house. ohio has 18 electoral college votes and has picked the winner in 2
. "washington post" poll, president obama leads about 51% to governor romney's 47%. back in september, the president had a stronger lead, 52% to 44% in virginia. why do you think the governor has been able to close the gap in the commonwealth? >> i think just like you see nationally and a lot of other swing states, after a first debate performance in early october for governor romney. he managed to show people kind of a different face than they had seen in a lot of negative advertisements or depicted by president obama and a lot of his allies. you've seen him gain nationally in a lot of swing states just like in virginia. the question is, have enough momentum now to put him over the top and that's kind of the question that everyone is asking themselves nine days out from the election now. >> in virginia, like other states, it can be separated in several states within a state. you've got southwest virginia, you've got hampton roads area and norfolk and the richmond area. you've got the d.c. suburbs, arlington and fairfax and alexandria. let's talk about the democratic shift there, nort
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
is not reflected in the new cnn poll. it is where it was a couple weeks ago. president obama hangs on to ohio and many believe he will hang on and be re-elected to a second term. this is not by a lack of trying by both candidates to win over last-minute votes and they are doing it to spend an incredible amount of money. $177 million buying television time, much of that money spent right here in northern ohio. we should point out in the cleveland market in 2008, total campaign ads, television time, $36 million. in 2010, it was up to $44 million spent. so far, we are at $88 million in cleveland alone. some say it's closer to $97 million and we've still got a way to go. 400% increase over two2008. the cost of a commercial in the 6:00 news is up over 400% in this market. i'll leave you with one other fascinating fanth. if you took all the political commercials that ran in the cleveland market since the beginning of october and ran them back-to-back you'd sit down and watch them for four and a half days straight. back to you, victor and christi. >> thank you. >>> speaking about polling, that could
at the polls it's been ve steady t point advantage. >> uh-huh. >> in the state for obama. and one of the oddities of the race so far is that the national numbers probably a slight romney favorite right now, the state numbers like ohio, and obama favored. and i don't know too many experienced political hands who expect that to continue, that you get at this junction between the national numbers and some of these swing state numbers. usually they come together. it's possible that if say romney gets a plurality or a majority of 50.6, it's possible to see him losin the electoral college. if he's up over 51 or 52, it's hard to reconcile a two or three point win with an electoral loss. numbers have got to be pretty close. >> because the two are more likely to go in tandem is what you are saying. >> yeah, it's a crazy system. and david and i can have that debate. the electoral college is -- >> we can talk about that next. >> yes, in the off season. but let's understand this. there is a republican advantage in ohio. ohio is more republican than the nation. and internally, this one democra
much smaller gains. mr. obama has consist enly lead in the polls here and still holds an average of a 2 to 3 point lead. with the resurgence of the auto industry, new stealle production and the promise of large natural gas reserves, you can sense the optimism here in northeast ohio. but a big question w is whether demoatic strongholds like youngstown will give mr. obama enough margin to carryde the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support frome autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people waing through our plint with clipboards taking inventory. they were going tot liquidate our facility. that's a fact.ou so mitt romney can air brush this all i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the american workers and we're going to invest in this when it wasn't a popular thing to do, absolutely h
. speaking at the polling center, obama encouraged americans to take advantage of early voting. >> for all of you who have not yet voted early, i just want everybody to see what an incredibly efficient process this was, thanks to the outstanding folks who are at this particular polling place. obviously, folks in illinois and take advantage of this. but all across the country, we are seeing a lot of early voting. it means you do not have to figure out whether you need to taint time off work, figure out how to pick up the kids, and still cast your ballot if something happens on election day, you'll have already taken care of it. and as bad weather, w you will weather,et. or in chicago, snowy. this was really convenient. >> campaigning in ohio, mitt romney predicted to supporters his election would mean an increase in workers' take-home pay. >> the president does not have a plan to get america working yet. with a five point plan that will get more jobs and more take-home pay and that is what america needs and that is why we are joined elected. >> as romney vowed to create jobs, workers at a f
could really matter. taking a look at the polls, here in new hampshire, president obama has maintained a small lead, but it's within the margin of error on most polls so you can say statistically that mitt romney and president obama are tied and so we've seen president obama pay a lot of attention to this little state. he's been here ten times this year. he just touched down at the manchester airport just minutes ago, so this is his tenth time on the ground here. vice president biden is expected to be here on monday for an event. that storm willing, i should say, and this is an important state, fred, because new hampshire is a place where voters can register to vote on election day. yes, this state was very big for mitt romney in the republican primaries, but the obama campaign feels that they have a really strong get out the vote effort when you look at the campaign offices, they have 24 to the romney campaign's nine. so as president obama makes his way here and we're expecting this event at elm street elementary school to get under way with president obama speaking at 2:15 eastern ti
problems with polling places. we talked about that earlier. i think it is frozen. obama's going to win. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." successful democracy depended on an informed electorate. our country's future depends on you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. take the time to learn about the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. >> bill: 33 minutes after the hour. tuesday, october 30. the day after hurricane sandy or maybe the first day of cleanup after hurricane sandy. we all survived and i hope all of you did too. 1-866-55-press. our toll free number. join the conversation here on the "full court press" at any time. we're coming to you live from our nation's capital. a wet and soggy nation's capital. and brought to you today by the international brotherhood of teamsters. yes, we all live better thanks to the great work of the men and women of the teamsters union under president jim hoffa building a better america. you can check out their goo

new tracking poll which came out at 5:00 today showed both candidates at 49%. there are other polls that show it slightly different. but every indication is that nationally this is a very close race. the question is where do things stand exactly in the battle ground states? the obama campaign has been insistent that they continue to have leads in enough battle ground states to win the election. the romney campaign insists that they are in a position to be able to overtake the president in a number of these states. so, we're playing in part a game of spin. somebody is going to be proven right or wrong. we know that some of these states have tightened up from where they were a month ago. i think that as susan said part of the issue is who is going to be able to get their voters out at this point, under what could be some difficult circumstances? >> woodruff: susan, how are you reading these polls right now? >> i'm struck over and over again by the damage that president obama did to his campaign in that first debate. it's like your mother always told you, you never get a second chance
presidential candidates will be in ohio today. the latest polls show president obama hold a slight lead in a majority of the battleground's contest and won the endorsement thursday of michael bloomberg, the politically independent mayor of new york city. >>> emergency workers believe they have contained a fire in tanker cars that derailed this week in kentucky. hundreds of people remain out of their homes, including the entire town of west point. the rail car contained a volatile chemical used to make the rubber and tires. >>> federal health officials say nine more people have been diagnosed with fungal meningitis linked to tainted steroid injections. at least 377 people have been sickened in 19 states. however, the cdc lowered the number of deaths from the outbreak to 28 instead of 29, and federal regulators say they have found contamination in more drugs made by a massachusetts pharmacy tied to the outbreak. >>> a new medical study finds that hospital patients routinely have their sleep disrupted by endless in-room activity overnight. yale researchers also found noise levels that exce
the race stand right now? well, a new rasmussen poll of likely voters showing governor romney leading president obama 49% to 47%. now, that is westboun within thn of error. former mississippi governor haley bar bore join barber join. good evening. > >> greta: have you had any further thoughts about the race? >> for my thinking, the biggest change in the race is to obama's favor and that's been this storm, you know. any day that we're not talking about the economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the natio
of times, it was the worst of times. i can show you ten polls and you'll say there is no way barack obama is going to win. and ten other polls would say mitt romney is sunk. >> an associated press poll has him up 49 to 45 with women. do you think that maybe stemmed from the debate? he was a little more moderate in the debate? how is he picking up these female voters right now? >> i have no idea. >> you're asking the wrong person. >> i have no idea. and these debates over abortion and these republican candidates who are just stepping in it on those issues, i think it's terrible timing for your party. at the same time, the polls show that mitt romney is actually gaining support among women. >> in a big way. >> i also think overall, it's still kind of convoluted enough where each side -- i can see -- the positive that i want to see, and why i think obama will win, he can probably see the other side. >> this is such a tight race. what do they need to do? what can they do at this point? >> president obama needs to close it. the past four years, he needs to be proud of his accomplishments. he n
florida a pivotal stopping ground. president obama has been there 12 times, mitt romney has been there 13 times. the "real clear politics" polling average shows a virtual tie, governor romney slightly ahead about 49-48. we have the tallahassee bureau chief of "the "tampa bay times"." it's my understanding you have tpupl numbers from your paper that shows the race not as tight as "real clear politics" has it. >> florida is trending in mitt romney's direction. it was unusual and a unique undertaking for my newspaper, we polled voters in the bell weather section of florida, the i4 corridor, which runs from tampa bay across the state to daytona beach. mitt romney 51%, president obama 45%. the president's people have said in none of their polling shows him lower than 47% in the state of florida. our poll had romney up by six points in the i4 corridor. jon: and that's really the prize in florida, isn't it? that is what both candidates are struggling to win. >> it is. it's where the candidates spend most of their time. bill clinton has campaigned for president obama in orlando. it's where tampa
